Police release composite image of Bulgaria bus bomber

Bulgarian police released a composite image Wednesday of the man accused of carrying out a suicide bomb attack on a bus at Burgas airport last month, in which five Israeli tourists and the Bulgarian bus driver died.

The image shows the face of a clean-shaven young man with short dark hair, a pale complexion and brown or green eyes.

It was created by applying "modern technologies and techniques" to the data collected, the police said in a statement.

Anyone with more information about the man pictured is urged to contact the authorities.

More than 30 other Israelis were injured, some seriously, in the terror attack two weeks ago. The Israelis had arrived from Tel Aviv to take a vacation at a resort on Bulgaria's Black Sea coast.

The bomb is believed to have been concealed in a backpack the suicide bomber placed on a bus in a parking lot outside the airport.

      From my understanding, they want to know who this guys was, and any pertinent information as to why he did what he did.
      He is already dead.

    Yes @banasy thanks.
    He was the alleged bomber who was killed.
    My intent was to say that I hope they get to the bottom of this and soon.A lot of accusations and theories are bandied around.

    I wonder who put this guy back together? He was holding a bomb that destroyed a bus. Many pieces everywhere! Perhaps a scientist from Transylvania?
